Read-Along: Lord of the Rings

LOTR readalong

I LOVE the LOTR series! To this day, they remain my favorite books (and movies) of all time! I usually never like movies based on books, but LOTR is an exception. Eva @ A Striped Armchair, Maree @ Just Add Books, Teresa @ Shelf Loveand the Clare @ The Literary Omnivore are hosting a read-along for the LOTR series and I am excited to join in. I have actually been planning to re-read the LOTR books this year, and am eager to discuss this series with my fellow readers.

This read-along runs from January 2010 till April, and covers the following books:

* January: The Hobbit
* February: The Fellowship of the Ring
* March: The Two Towers here
* April: The Return of the King

I'm glad I am joining as well!! I will be reading The Hobbit as well, which is the only one of the four that I haven't previously read. But I will start it only after Jan 13th, since right now, I am on vacation and my book is sitting on my shelf at home.

I'm glad you're reading The Hobbit. :) It's pretty short (less than 300 pgs in my edition) and stylistically a lot simpler than LOTR, so I doubt you'll have a problem catching up.
